Magic men


OK, let's review.

Matt Kemp is on the DL.

Still.

The Dodgers are in first place.

Still.

The Dodgers have the best record in baseball.

Still.

They're doing it with players like this ...


And this ...


And this ...


Still.

Did I mention that their next big offensive threat after Kemp ...


Is in a slump?

Yet, they just swept the Phillies in their own ballpark.

A four-game sweep. The first Dodgers four-game sweep in Philadelphia ever.

And they're doing it with players like this ...


And this ...


OK, not him.

Why'd we get him again?

But, at any rate, it doesn't seem like anything is an obstacle for the Dodgers. Jerry Hairston hitting clean-up? A guy who spent nearly a decade in the minors as one of your most reliable hitters?

They are 37-21.

And they very well could be a team that does the same thing that these guys did with their teams:


Somebody explain it.

Or someone explain why they can't do it. Because, so far, none of that logic as worked.

But you know what the best part of this is?

The best part of this is that all of these cards were sent to me ...

...

By a Giants fan.

Thanks, ARPSmith for helping me illustrate the greatness of the Dodgers this year.

Inexplicable though it may be.

  1. It has been a fun year to watch so far. I am in shock at what our boys are doing. Kemp back on the team can only make us better. Could this season even get any better?

  2. yeah-- the Giants have been playing great lately and have managed to shave only a few games off of the LA lead. :(

  3. My fantasy team suffers as long as Kemp is sidelined. I don't have Kemp but Eithier, who I DO have, isn't seeing as much to hit. At least that's what Vin Scully told me the other night.

    Get well soon, Matt Kemp!!
